Join RailsNW and the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad as the one and only Oregon Coast Crawler takes you on a memorable 5 hour journey of exploration and beautiful Oregon scenery. Originating out of Garibaldi, take a leisurely trip up the Oregon Coast affording fantastic panoramic views of both Tillamook and Nehalem Bays. This vintage scenic train ride stops for a waterside picnic lunch and free time at Wheeler as well as an afternoon snack and stopover in Rockaway Beach. The train will be pulled by either the 100-year old Curtiss Lumber #2 Heisler, a geared logging engine, or the recently acquired Mccloud #25, which is an Alco 2-6-2. Your Oregon scenic train ride will include an open car in the consist to enjoy the fresh air and unparalleled views.
A minimum of three photo runbys have been scheduled and more will be added if time permits. A lunch made with local ingredients will be served at Wheeler picnic-style in the park, and a Tillamook County historian accompanies our trip for onboard commentary. The October 1st trip will be a celebration of the centennial of the completion of PR&N’s rail line connecting Tillamook County to Portland. Whether a railfan, a photographer, or simply someone who enjoys a relaxing day on the Oregon Coast, the Crawler is sure to please.
As this trip is limited to less than 100 passengers, we highly recommend making your reservations ASAP. Feel free to call us at 503-292-5055 if you have any questions. Click here for online reservations: http://www.railsnw.com/tours/charter/garibaldi_steam/garibaldi_steam.htm
